The income eligibility criteria for Home Upgrade Grant - phase 2 (HUG2) funding has increased to £36,000 a year. Some residents who may not have applied previously because they were over the first £31,000 threshold may now be eligible.

Even though we are now entering the warmer months, residents are encouraged to apply to grants as soon as possible because there is a 3 to 6 month time frame from application to installation. Apply now to be warm NEXT winter!

Stratford-on-Avon District Council works alongside local energy experts Act on Energy, to help administer all winter warmth grant funding. There are many types of funding, follow the link to our website to read more about them and how to apply.

Cllr Susan Juned, Leader of Stratford-on-Avon District Council, said: "We really hope the changes to the eligibility criteria mean more residents will benefit from the grant. This is an extremely helpful scheme, and we encourage as many people as possible to find out about it and apply."

Act on Energy has been helping Midlands' households with energy advice for 25 years and can provide residents with free, impartial advice about what funding might be available.

If you would like to apply for any of these funding schemes or find out more about eligibility criteria, please visit the Act on Energy website.
